crash in the our world. is just as much as on wall street and the other kind of world is a very sort of go of yourself mentality right now and i think the society is breaking apart because of that i'm living in the slice of the life i used to have lunch baker contributed to occupied by starring in an independent film as the wife of ponzi schemer bernie madoff now in jail for one hundred fifty years the film ruth made off occupies wall street highlights wealth inequality through humor in this case really made off even in the middle of zuccotti park would be concerned about things that only the one percent could possibly be concerned about blanche believes occupy gave voice to a majority that wasn't heard before there has to be some kind of a new model going forward where this kind of economic disparity. is dealt with in a way that benefits everyone you can't sweep it under the carpet and ignore it anymore
need to endure something after seven years at morgan stanley alexis goldstein could no longer tolerate the greed and toxicity of wall street she quit and is now an author and an occupy organizer on wall street there's this attitude if you get screwed by somebody it's because you are stupid optimal poker playing is take your best friend for all they're worth the same is true on the street. the occupy wall street movement started as an ocean of people on the streets and in camps and that tactic of holding public spaces the police have made it at least with their seeable future impossible we've kind of adapted in this way where we're organizing more specific themes. themes that could be while on the way to bringing much more tangible results. like hurricane relief occupy has been praised for doing a better job of the government agency feeling much as well as projects like strike jets well as many as one in seven americans are founded by debt collectors occupies
raising money to try to abolish the debt burden for as many people as they can by buying distressed debt for pennies on the dollar and then wiping it out. the crowds may be gone from the streets but those fighting for the ninety nine percent continue working by themselves and in groups to put an end to the world of the powerful beating down on the voiceless and to try to build a socially responsible community is that you're going to hurt new york. and up next an interview with a person and so forth richard which is mother's sir richard branson. his day starts at five am. even earlier in the winter tending to his flock of story hundred sheep in the mountains and plains of t.v.
thirty five years old it wasn't the life he dreamt of having studied accounting but he dition and familial duty dictated that he would take on the care of these animals after his father has just made camp at their winter farm stead setting up his ute judicial to fenian round tent made of disc ins. back amongst his family as his job is a lonely one and tough going out in all weathers braving streams of plus to minus forty degrees celsius says that i'm with them there are certain difficulties there's not enough time for everything i'm almost alone my sister works with my mother my mother is seventy five she's very old and i miss mountains when i'm in town and i spend a lot of time here. most of us simply carrying out the work that his father did and his father before him nothing has changed over many many centuries and that's half the problem it's hard work and many people don't want to come into the industry now and that's where they fit their could die out altogether. it's difficult to manage
everything alone i used to have people who helped me but they were no good they didn't take care of the sheep with all their heart they hurt the cattle. with new people leaving them coming to the countryside the regions government is having to act making the life of the herd in more attractive than promising largest. and lie stocks and organizing cooperatives for the sale of de products to ensure the herd it gets a higher fair price i sympathizes with those youngsters leaving for an easier more profitable life stay in the public's capital. so he doesn't who wishes to join them he enjoys his pastoral way of life looking for a helper who shares his enthusiasm but more time on his hands he says matter of fact he can start to look for you wife.
a surprise and thank you so much for joining me today now i'd like to start and go back when you were fifteen years old you decided to leave school you want to start a magazine pretty much from took on the world exactly happened but you have managed to achieve a lot of things are you happy all the way the world is right now is a good person i like the what the world is extremely good to me. and i've had the joy of a life i think of everybody everybody i know. i'm still the love again i spoke quite a lot of my time now. issues like conflict resolution issues that the world. and obviously you know the world if you live in syria today the world is not a happy place at all. we have a wonderful organization called the elders that are trying to help. resolve that
called. like in fact lakhdar brahimi he's one of the elders you know beating people rushing to try to try to get agreement as quickly as possible so that we can spare the the people of syria. and i think if we can get russia or russia on board and america are on board we. the syrian government on board hopefully we can get or get that promise of how the site actually work well the elders are actually going to station the twelve people that nelson mandela set up. and they. have people like president carter. nelson mandela. archbishop tutu people with high bar of authority they work is that as a as a as a group to try to resolve conflicts and then sometimes the individual elders i would like to bring here has been asked by the united nations to try to. you know
work with the various countries involved with syria to try to to try to get this problem result and. so since you asked am i happy with the world obviously syria is a miserable place and it needs to be resolved it should be a top priority i think of every caring politician to get to get this problem result was about the time when you were editing the magazine and you started up a magazine trying to stop the war in vietnam from what i understand do you think journalism can actually change the world and the course of things that is happening oh i think journalists can certainly change the world the internet can change the world i mean it was through the internet and through journalism in the public. the arab spring happen on twitter and google plus and facebook. if you have followers and you want to try to sort out a problem in the world and you get other friends who got it begin. plans to do the
same you can sort these problems that i campaigned a lot for the oceans to try to stop people killing sharks in the oceans and you know we got quite a lot of laws changed around the world thanks to. the internet. so yes i think journalism is that. the public work and it's a very important but journalism can go to extremes this was special what we're seeing happen with international where do you think and the u.k. in journalism has had this responsible journalism in the u.k. and there's irresponsible journalism one or two newspapers that are very very sort of extreme in their thinking and i suspect we need more but sorry but the good thing is that the internet is counterbalancing that i think we used to have a newspaper. called the daily mail it's ready for people in a so i think a slightly negative way but i think the internet will hopefully start balance like
that it now and what's your take on the western powers of today for example julian assange. hero or at the end what's your point i would not call him a hero or a villain i think that the mistake he made was not editing he had an incredible information and he could have made thousands of great stories without without putting it life some people some people around the world i'm think perhaps he just went a bit too far generally i'm all for one hundred percent freedom of the press but i think in that situation you know there were definitely we had that would take a lot of dealings in zimbabwe trying to bring about democracy and then suddenly we saw what we were doing and tried to bring about democracy appear so robert mugabe could say that you sometimes you don't want a dictator is is being doing bad things to find out. that other people are trying to bring about democracy you know you can put light. now
your brain that's mean much to their friends and their children's upbringing and if we talk about. right now in case you think that i have cause because i'm seeing the riots take place in two thousand and eleven for our. life right now and their lack of motivation i think. i'm not as politically minded. that they were when in the sixty's when. they should have they should have. been the big demonstration of the set of even bigger demonstrations. i think if anything the. vocal enough this generation i think that when politicians. take. the. easy to start. to stop.
politicians should be clever enough to get rid of leaders. without having to. the people and. i think the young people there are there are too many people out of lloyd and i think personally that nobody should be allowed to be unemployed i think you can share the jobs that are available you can share with everybody which might mean that people have a three day weekend instead of a two day weekend whatever but there is room to make sure that everybody has a job and i think that would result a lot of the problems of the world a little bit of a general question now which just say you are a dreamer visionary or an entrepreneur are all about and what's more than i dream big and then i try to make my dreams become reality. i dreamt of going into the mood one day and. decided not to wait for the russian
spaceship company or the american spaceship company we built you know we're building our own spaceships to take us into space i think everybody should try to dream above what they're capable of and then try try to catch up with your dreams and now fortunately imprint secular and everything that happened recently. that i know you're fighting for it's. what's next. it's also has a large business section we think. the kind of people in moscow would want to use between that and he threat. that flying from gatwick. very small plane is not such a good idea so we think we think the civil aviation authority made the wrong decision but obviously the ideal. is that you have three carriers flying
to moscow i mean if. you have flying people into this country the better and they're paid a lot of rumors about you and russia very often frequently have one strand. in the country or any other projects perhaps taking place is there anything less well i mean today we were going to be doing a lot in russia today we announced that. we were going to set up. a lot of money. trying to reduce people's energy output. in a positive way that. russia's had all this oil and therefore they never really tried to preserve energy and if you can preserve energy. then you can export more oil you know with three hundred billion dollars into russia or into trying to
invest. companies that come up with good ways of saving energy but nothing in particular right now that you can mention the virgin green fund which we're going to start from from today but we'll be looking at mobile phones we'll be looking at quite a lot of other investments as well last question. look if i get regretted anything i'd be a very sad person i mean i've just had the most incredible fantastic. lots of adventures. created three other companies just had a blast is surrounded by wonderful people. been married to the same lady. great children. their regrets. for yourself have faced a number of times especially on your travels on a hot air balloon race across the ocean what made you to own for and over again i
can imagine must have been so painful for your family as well the amount of could find out who probably have rights and i love the child i always love a challenge great difficulty and if somebody says. nobody around the world in a balloon or. nobody's. to say well let's try. and i'm sure it wasn't easy. but now my children are doing it with. the highest margin in europe a couple of months ago we. have together across the channel we're going to space together. so my children i think understand why i like to live life to it's full of. that with me as your wife happy with the fact that your children are out and we exact same thing to you i don't think she's. wildly happy but she certainly loves children doing what they want to do and that's i think that's what.
we do we try not to take unnecessary. either way we have wonderful exciting challenges but i tried to make it so i bring the children i just want to thank you thank you so much for joining us like you. to me speak your language. programs and documentaries in arabic it's all here on. reporting from the world talks but specifically ip interviews intriguing stories are you. trying. to find out more visit our big teeth.
